Only one place close to Latvia to sell a 770 and that is Mirbach in Germany. They handle most of the high end cars. Have your family tried contracting the mercedes Classic center in Germany? they will buy interesting mercedes and restore them for resale.
Mercedes-Benz Classic - Mercedes-Benz Classic

C.F. Mirbach - hochwertige Oldtimer, Youngtimer, Mercedes, Ferrari, Porsche, BMW, Aston-Martin, Bugatti, BMW, Fiat, Horch, Jaguar, Bentley, Rolls-Royces, Klassische Automobile, Classic Cars"

I guess by now, the "Russian Millionaire " will have learned the Hitler Never owned a car in his life. The 770's were almost all owned by Daimler Benz and used by the State as required. Today,Daimler AG has a fleet of 600's used for exactly the same purpose.
A Russian Millionaire is a long way down the ladder as far as money goes,Moscow has more millionaires than any other city in the World. If he were a Russian oligark,then I would be impressed. ... slightly.

I know you are pretty sceptical I would be too, I have never actually seen that car but the guy has photographs and calendars of it and he is really paranoid about it. During soviet times the car was in some sort of auto club where they restored it, but after the break up of the soviet union he ended up with it an tried to sell it in the early 90's which didnt work out and later it got crashed so now he's getting to be very old and want's to get rid of it.

There is one in New Zealand in Len Southwards Museum ,even has the flag standards on the front.
A real Nazi car is the "blue Goose" built for Herman Goring and at least there is a ton of evidence to prove it was really his.
In the meantime the whole story has been shown to yet another Scam to try and sell a 770 by an unscrupulous dealer .

Wieder ein “falscher” Hitler-Wagen
Von Jörg Enger am 25. November 2009

Fröhlich behauptet, dies sei Hitlers Mercedes gewesen

Schon in den 1970er Jahren wurden mit Vorliebe Mercedes-Benz Fahrzeuge mit dem deutschen (Österreicher) Diktator des Deutschen Reiches zwischen 1933 und 1945, Adolf Hitler in Verbindung gebracht, um deren Preis zu steigern. Nach vielen als “falsch” dokumentierten Fahrzeugen trumpfte Anfang dieser Woche wieder der berüchtigte Düsseldorfer Autohändler Michael Fröhlich sogar mit einer dpa-Meldung auf. Er habe im Auftrag eines reichen Russen zwei Monate lang nach dem Wagen gefahndet und sei schließlich fündig geworden. Der Wagen solle nun mit fünf weiteren Limousinen von Nazi- und Wehrmachts-Größen für einen zweistelligen Millionenbetrag den Besitzer wechseln. Zuvor sei die Karosse des Führers mal in Las Vegas und mal in München gewesen.
Das schockierte sogar den Händler, von dem Fröhlich dieses Auto erhalten hatte.
Neben den Ungereimtheiten, nach nur zwei Monaten Recherche ein solches Fahrzeug “ausfindig” gemacht zu haben (jeder, der einmal ein spezielles Fahrzeug gesucht hat, weiß, dass eine solche Suche Jahre dauern kann), gibt Fröhlich auch völlig unsinnige Leistungswerte an. So soll die gepanzerte Limousine des Typs 770K W150 – aber es handelt sich bei dem gezeigten Wagen um einen Tourer – mit knapp fünf Tonnen Gewicht, 400 PS und einer Spitzengeschwindigkeit von 180 km/h ausgestattet sein.
“Hitlers Auto gab es so nicht“, sagte Dr. Josef Ernst von der Traditions-PR bei Daimler dann auch am Dienstag. Zwar seien einige Fahrzeuge des Typs 770 K durch die Reichskanzlei für den Fuhrpark geordert worden, wer sie aber letztlich benutzt hat, sei nicht mehr nach zu vollziehen. Möglicherweise sei tatsächlich auch einmal Hitler darin chauffiert worden.
In der Tat stammt das besagte Fahrzeug aus der Sammlung des Imperial Palace Hotels, Las Vegas, die vor einigen Jahren in diesem Bereich aufgelöst wurde. Nicht weniger als acht Fahrzeuge des Typs 770 K zählten zu dieser Sammlung, und immernoch nennt das Hotel eine stattliche Anzahl Vorkriegs-Mercedes-Benz Fahrzeuge sein Eigen.

Bedenklich dabei ist weniger der Handel mit Devotionalien des 3. Reiches, als vielmehr die Geschichts-Verbiegung zur Umsatzsteigerung.

“ more wrongly ” Hitler cars from Jörg Enger on 25 November 2009 Merrily stated, this was Hitler's Mercedes Already in the 1970's with preference Mercedes-Benz vehicles were brought Adolf Hitler with the German (Austrians) dictator of the German Reich between 1933 and 1945, in connection, in order to increase their price. After many as “ wrongly ” documented vehicles played trumps at the beginning of this week again the notorious Düsseldorfer car dealer Michael Frohlich even with a DPA message. It searched on behalf a rich Russian for the car and finally found became two months long. The car is to change now with five further sedans of Nazi and Wehrmachts sizes for a two digit amount of millions the owner. Before the body of the leader is times in read Vegas and times in Munich been. The shocked even the dealer, from whom Frohlich had received this car. Apart from the inconsistencies after only two months search such a vehicle “ ” to have made (everyone, which looked for once a special vehicle, knows that such a search can last years), Claims by Frohlich also have completely unreasonable power ratings. Thus the armored sedan of the type 770K W150 is – however it acts with the car shown is a Tourer – with scarcely five tons weight, 400 HP and a top speed of 180 km/h to be equipped. “ this was not Hitler's car “, said Dr. Josef Ernst of the tradition PR with Daimler on Tuesday. Some vehicles of the type 770 K were not ordered by the realm chancellery for the vehicle park, who used them however in the long run, are according to no more to be carried out. Actually Hitler was chauffered therein. Indeed the mentioned vehicle originates from the collection imperially of the Palace hotel, las Vegas, which was dissolved some years ago . Less than eight vehicles of the type 770 K did not rank among this collection, and the hotel always still calls vehicles its own a stately number of Vorkriegs MercedesBenz. Precariously with it less the trade with devotional objects of the 3rd Reich are stories buckling for increase in sales. Category history, economics
